If I Had Three Wishes

Updated on December 30, 2010
Wedded bliss evermore
Wedded bliss evermore
This love is so amazing
This love is so amazing
We could spread our wings and fly
We could spread our wings and fly
We would travel round the world
We would travel round the world
Let's reach up to touch the sky
Let's reach up to touch the sky
Simply breath taking
Simply breath taking
Just smile - it really is contagious!
Just smile - it really is contagious!
Let's make this world a happier place
Let's make this world a happier place


Have you ever noticed if you smile you feel so much better. When we are happy we smile. If you are feeling rather sad or particularly down make an effort and smile, it really does help you know. Try it and see what happens! Smile at everyone you meet and notice their reaction.


If I Had Three Wishes


If I just had three wishes

I would share them all with you

For you are my Truelove

And I love you through and through


I’d wish for our health and happiness

And to always love like this

To care for each other

With continued wedded bliss


Together holding hands

We could spread our wings and fly

Over mountains and tree tops

Reaching up to touch the sky


We’d travel round the world

Spreading love every day

To every human being

We passed along our way


We’d share this love with others

And put a smile upon each face

This would make a difference

To the entire human race


This world should see our happiness

It’s contagious don’t you know

Just smile today at someone

And watch that smile grow


A smile is really catching

It puts joy in your heart

Let’s all try together

And make a brand new start

      A very cheerful poem. It takes more muscles in our face to frown than to smile. Yes a smile is very contagious. I loved the pictures.

      4. Oh yes and find a nice girlfriend with 'all' of your best qualities.

      Do you think that's possible to find someone like that? lol

      Probably not, because there is only one Miss S.

      You know, I used to see people smile in love and i always wanted to hit it off of their faces. I never believed in it until it landed in my lap when i didnt expect it. This reminds me of how beautiful love is now that i can feel it within. Up and beautiful.

      acaetnna, this is so true, a smile is an instant cure for a troubled soul, and on top of this, it is contagious. I really practice this - When I feel negative because of any reason, I look at myself in the mirror and practice smiles until I really laugh at my silly self. And then... whalla... I feel better and ready for Life again.

      I have only one wish – that all my wishes come true.

      Have a wonderful Friday and weekend, acaetnna! (The 2nd of 2011!)
